WHO ARE YOU HIKING FOR ON JUNE 4TH?
On Sunday June 4, 2023 get those stretches in, dig out those hiking boots and get ready to enjoy the great outdoors in support of Hospice Vaughan! Participants will gather once again at Sonoma Heights Park to walk together and remember loved ones we’ve lost along the way. This June, let’s walk in honour of individuals, families and caregivers facing a life-limiting illness or the loss of a loved one.
It is just over two years since Hospice Vaughan opened the doors to our 12-bed palliative care hospice residence and the Mario & Nick Cortellucci Hospice Palliative Care Centre of Excellence, the first specialized health care facility of its kind in Vaughan. A dream brought to reality thanks to YOU. We are so grateful for our community’s commitment and dedication to our mission.
Every dollar raised will go towards supporting our programs and services, which are offered 100% FREE – compassionate individuals like you make these programs possible.
Join us on Sunday June 4th, 2023 and help us raise much-needed funds to help those that need us most in our community!
WE CAN’T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU!
Hike for Hospice Vaughan is a fundraiser open to all ages and abilities. The event provides participants with an opportunity to celebrate loved ones living with advanced illness and honour those who have passed away. Each year, we walk to raise funds that will support our mission.
A NOTE FROM OUR EVENT CHAIR
“You matter because you are you, and you matter until the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.” – Dame Cicely Saunders
This quote is inscribed at the entrance of Hospice Vaughan, where my father and our family lived the final days of his life. It touched me profoundly. My father won no awards. His name was never in lights. He was not famous. He was a simple man. But he was loved by everyone, and he mattered.
As this year’s Chair of Hike for Hospice, I walk in honour of my father, in honour of the hundreds of families that have been welcomed through the doors of Hospice Vaughan, and in honour of all of those still to pass through them.
I hope you will join me either physically or virtually to support Hospice Vaughan’s commitment to support individuals to live fully and ensure a better ending.
Because everyone deserves to die with dignity.
